I really liked the layout of the apartment. I traveled with my boyfriend and our niece and nephew (kids) and I felt like we had lots of space. The furniture is a little outdated, but I did not mind one bit. I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here before and we absolutely love the property and what it offers. The furniture downstairs in the living room and dining room though were in very rough condition. We couldnt sit on the couch due to you sinking down into the sleeper mattress.

Very convenient location. Property was a bit old. Cracked ceilings, broken drawers in the kitchen and the shower still had hair from previous guests. Pool water was murky. Box of old pizza sat in the community room for atleast two days.staff was friendly. Kitchen had all supplies needed.
